We are writing to invite you to the 2nd Symposium on Networked Systems Design & Implementation (NSDI '05), April 24, 2005, in Boston, MA.
NSDI '05 focuses on the design principles of large-scale distributed and networked systems. Our goal is to bring together researchers from across the systems and networking communities to foster cross-disciplinary approaches and to address shared research challenges.
We received 112 technical submissions, and from these the NSDI '05 Program Committee selected 25 papers for inclusion in the symposium. The resulting program includes a diverse collection of creative and well-developed papers in areas including distributed systems/operating systems, core networking, and wireless/sensor networks. In addition, NSDI '05 will feature a poster session where attendees can interact with researchers describing their current work in its formative stages and learn more about the leading edge of networked systems design. Finally, NSDI is pleased to feature a keynote address from Tom Leighton from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Akamai. As one of the world's preeminent authorities on algorithms for network applications, Tom Leighton co-founded Akamai Technologies in September 1998. Serving as Chief Scientist, Dr. Leighton is Akamai's technology visionary as well as a key member of the Executive Committee setting the company's direction.
Please join us for this exciting symposium presenting the best of current networked systems research and practice. We look forward to seeing you there.
